Pre / Post Nuptial Agreements

Pre and Post nuptial agreements ensure that a parties assets are protected, and particularly will be effective for those people who wish to protect assets, such as through a second marriage.

When people are planning to marry, or form a civil partnership, they may decide to enter into a legally binding contract which illustrates their intentions of what will happen to money, property, pensions and other assets if their marriage or civil partnership were to end. This is known as a pre-nuptial agreement.

Some may choose to regulate the terms of their marriage or civil partnership after the event of their marriage, which is known as a post nuptial agreement.

We offer tailored legal advice considering your situation and the most effective way that you are able to reach your overall objective. This could be protecting assets, a family business or putting matters into Trust, for those who you would wish to benefit from this.

These agreements can be an effective solution and alternative to dealing with assets upon separation. These can record both parties wishes and feelings, without discomfort or animosity. They are increasingly being recognised by the Court.

Preferably, a pre-nuptial agreement needs to be prepared and signed by both parties in advance of the wedding. This must be at least 21 days before hand.

We are able to produce and offer advice on agreements which adhere to the recommended guidelines. We have prepared a number of pre and post nuptial agreements for couples who have multiple properties and large assets.

We work with our clients to protect what is important to them.
